30/9/20

                                       A fine Wild Atlantic Salmon Salmon!


Phil in action 
 





 


30/9/10 Covid 19 as we all know dictated proceedings this 2020 Salmon and Sea Trout season, especially denying long time and new Currane fly anglers coming from all over the World to this world famous Salmon and Seatrout Fishery, well I have great news in the Salmon department, Currane fly angler Mr. Phil Staniforth of the UK and Ireland while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com  caught a cracker of a Salmon of 14 lbs. on a 6lbs leader and what a battle Phil had with this monster of a Salmon, it took 2 hours to safely manipulate this fine Salmon into the shoreline so he could be put back, so congratulations to Phil, a day I’m sure you will never forget and the same goes to your Gillie Dominic. Weather wind Southwest and the photos tell it all on this last day of the 2020 Salmon Season.

29/9/20


                                Lough Currane today!

29/9/20 There were four boats out, two on the northside and two on the Southside and by all accounts their lines were slack, that’s  only speculation on my part, what isn’t speculation, Kerry is on a yellow rain warning, their forecasting 25 to 40mm of rainfall for the Southwest and as we know tomorrow is the last day of the 2020 Salmon Season, so all bets are on the Currane anglers converting back to the Inny catch and release fly anglers. All I can say is tight lines to all the Waterville Fishery Anglers. Wind South Southwest light to fresh and overcast, humidity 85%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.4 centigrade.

LOUGH CURRANE TODAY!                                    




 28/9/20 Going by the spy glasses just four boats out manipulating the Currane waters and going by the lack of texts its all quiet in all departments. As you can see by the photos it was hard going with little enough wind from the Northwest and bright sunshine all day, humidity 87%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.0 centigrade.

27/9/20

                               Calm day on Lough Currane!
 

27/9/20 There were at least 10 boats out manipulating this day, which was great to see, plus the majority were on the drift, by all accounts there was a nice mixture of Sea Trout and Brown Trout caught on the drift. In the Salmon drifting department one unlucky Currane fly Angler got into a fine Salmon but sadly My Noble Salmon was well educated saw that the anglers engine was down and headed straight for it and got an automatic  catch and release, the rest is history. Wind light and variable and overcast, humidity 93%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 13.9 centigrade.

24/9/20

Currane today!

24/9/20 The Currane anglers were stranded on the shoreline as the yellow wind warning took control as the Northwest gales hammered the lake and veered North with no respite, but not all was lost as the heavens opened last night and early this morning, which made good fishing for the River Inny. Today’s weather as already stated. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 14.4 centigrade. 

River Inny today!

19/9/20 The Currane drifters were all quiet this bright September’s day. What do you expect with bright sunshine all day and little clouds to talk of, followed by a light to calm Southwest wind, humidity 66%? That sums up today’s news. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 21.3 centigrade.

18/9/20

18/9/20 Wind East Northeast light bright sunshine all day, humidity 69%. Where the Currane drifters are concerned you could say it was a loss cause. So, on that depressing note, we go back in time to the Currane archives, on the 26/8/20 Mr. Jamie Conway, flyfishing for the first time on Lough Currane, caught a fine Salmon, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com All I can say Jamie, may it be the first of many and my apologies for the delay. Wind as already stated, yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 23.3 centigrade.

16/9/20 The Currane drifters had a hard day of it and for good reason, there was little wind to talk off, plus it was very humid at 91% followed by bright sunshine at times.

13/9/20

 13/9/20 The Currane Drifters were in a quandary this wild day and for good reason, there was a strong Southwest wind blowing, as you can imagine it makes it more difficult to manipulate your flies, especially when your boat drifts towards those submerged rocks as you get that crunchy feeling, I will leave the rest to your imagination. In the Salmon department all quiet on the Southwest front. On the World-Famous Butler Pool there were two fly anglers’ manipulating their flies, no reports as of yet. Wind as already stated, reasonable cloud cover and humidity at 82%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.3 centigrade.

12/9/20 Again the Currane fly drifters were in good form in the Sea Trout and Brown Trout department. On the World-famous Butler pool there were 3 Anglers manipulating their Salmon flies, but as of yet my mobile is slack, so I take it the anglers in question had slacklines? Wind Southwest light with good cloud cover, humidity 83%.Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.5 centigrade.

 10/9/20 I stand corrected and guilty as charged for failing miserably in my duties for not checking my texts properly yesterday, so my apologies, so let us put the record straight. Well for starters, the Currane fly anglers caught a few nice Sea Trout on the drift. In the Salmon department there was a fine Salmon caught on the troll.

8/9/20

                            Anthony McGillicuddy RIP
 

8/9/20 I start with the sad news that the Currane Anglers and the good  people of Waterville have lost a great Taxi Driver Mr. Anthony McGillicuddy RIP, who I might add, took many a Currane Angler to their favourite restaurant after their day’s fishing and brought them back to their B+B or hotels and homes after their night out, I can say without any fear of contradiction he will surely be missed. So, on behalf of the Currane anglers and the good people of Waterville and Kerry and the good people afar, our sincere sympathies to his good Wife Cora and all the Family and friends. Well Anthony you may be gone but you certainly will not be forgotten as you make your way on the Heavenly highway to Heaven. RIP

 

The Currane anglers were in good form with a nice few Sea Trout caught on the drift today. Now we head for the world famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  It was reported to me that there was one Salmon caught on the fly. Now we head for the upper Lakes, just for the record there has some fine action in the Trout department, plus a few rod benders in the Salmon department. On the River Inny department there was a nice flood coming down at lunch time, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know the majority of the Currane Anglers had their catch and release Inny hats on this day, how many caught, that is the question? Wind Southwest light and overcast, humidity 98%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 centigrade.

2/9/20

 

2/9/20 Lough Currane maybe on the dirty side but in the last few days there have been a nice few Juniors caught on the drift, in the Salmon department we head for the World famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  and for good reason, on Sunday 30th there were two Salmon caught on the fly, the following day, there were 3 caught, also on the fly, which I might add is great to see. On today’s action, all quiet on all fronts? That includes the Inny. Wind West light and overcast all day with misty rain through the day and just for the record there was a small flood on the Inny and when I say small, I mean small, going by what I saw at midday. Wind as already stated, humidity 97%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.3 centigrade.

1/9/20

 

1/9/20 May be old news but very interesting on the last big flood and why it is taking so long for Lough Currane to clean up, for starters there were big landslides and Copal Lake is still dirty because of this, so low and behold one of the reasons why the Big Lake is still dirty and not forgetting the Big Floods from the Upper Lakes going into the Commeragh, so it  may take a few more days ?  Going by the forecast there is more rain tomorrow, how much that is the question. On today’s manipulations all quiet on all fronts and just for the record there were four boats out on this calm day, wind South Southwest light with reasonable cloud cover, humidity 86%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 centigrade.
